Return to Our School

Headteacher’s Welcome

Welcome to Merry Hill Infant School and Nursery

On behalf of all the staff I would like to welcome you to our website and to our school.

At Merry Hill, we are extremely proud of the excellent relationships that exist between our pupils, staff, parents, governors and the wider community.  The power of partnership that exists between home and school ensures every success in our children.

For your child, starting school is an expedition into the unknown. We trust it will be an exciting and enjoyable experience for all concerned.

We know how special your child is to you and it is important to us that they are happy and feel secure and relaxed at school. With this in mind, we try to make our school an extension of a caring home, where the children will respond well to the learning environment.

As teachers we believe that, given opportunities and choices in an enriching and stimulating environment, children will be eager to learn.  When children are encouraged to talk and interact with friends and adults in positive surroundings, they feel safe and able to explore all opportunities. All children will be taught self-belief and self-esteem, as this will guide them to independently  overcome obstacles (both academic and emotional) through experiences that are challenging yet attainable.

Parents and families who have chosen to be a part of the Merry Hill community have entrusted us with one of the most important and rewarding responsibilities – that of the academic, social, emotional, spiritual, welfare of their children. All staff and governors take this role very seriously and we look forward to sharing with you the journey through this first stage in your child’s academic career.

I think this is a very special school, but don’t just take my word for it … you can read on this page and on our Children’s Message Board the children’s own words about what they think of Merry Hill.

To come and see us for yourselves, please contact the School Office to arrange a visit.

Ms. Melissa Adams MA, NPQH
